Do all Asians look the same??

CLICK HERE to take the test. Then choose Exam #1 - Faces. "These are photos taken in New York City. The people who appear in these pictures are 100% Chinese, Japanese or Korean; nobody is mixed."

Maybe you've seen it before, maybe not. It asks you to create an account (FREE), and that takes just a minute to do. Put something bogus, it doesn't matter. The test takes just a minute or two, and will be an eye opening experience for you.

Once you take the test, please comment and tell me how you did! I got 2 right! There are 18, and when you're done it will show you the correct answers.

All right all of you lurkers... this just takes a couple minutes. Don't forget to comment with your score.

That was interesting and something I have had to learn to deal with. WE live in an area where there are a lot of IA from China, Korea, Guatamala, and Eastern Europe. I get asked all the time "what is she?" Over the last year I have gone from okay, to a little ticked off - I once replied that she's a girl and walked away - to just realizing that it is a question that gives people an opening in many case to hear our story. Well, here is how I did. I got 7 correct. Bfore we travled to China we hosted a groups (over 40) of student ot come to our University and study Public Administration. They were from Nanning like our daughter and I learned a lot about how different the ethnic groups are amoung the Chinese. We also had about 10 Japanese student that we in the program. This was interesting, thanks for sharing it :D

Well I hope everyone who reads your blog doesn this test. I scored a lousy 6 of 18. They told me that sucked.
Going to crawl under my desk now to hover in shame.

I got a nine out of 18 and the site said I was "ok". I second guessed myself on three of them and went with the other answer, should have stayed with my original instinct as they were correct and I would have had three more to add to my result. Interesting indeed as I am Ch-Am and thought I could tell the difference better. Apparently not as well as I thought and it just goes to show that you really can't judge by looks alone and shouldn't.

I got 8 right. Most of them were women that I correctly guessed at. Interesting test.

Ok, I only got 6... said I am very bad... I am ashamed but in my defence I do not think any of the people looked the same.... they all looked so different!!!! Which is the same thing I discovered when I was looking at the facial features of everyone when we were in China. I still hope to do better some day.
I love Yes, Minister's comment to "What is she?" She's a girl...
Good for you!!!!!!!!!!!! some people are sooooooooooooo RUDE! Bet that made their mouth drop open.. lol

I only got 5 right! That was hard, but I work with a Korean gal who says she can't tell the difference most of the time either. Everyone is just made so much differently -- from every Country.

I'm chinese-american and I got a 9. I always told everyone that asked that I can only tell the difference by how they speak and if the wear their countries clothing (kimono, chi-pao (not sure if that's spelled right for the chinese silk type dresses), etc). =)
